The American Red Cross Bloodmobile is making a few stops around the area this week. The need for blood is constant, with someone in the US needing a blood transfusion every 2 seconds. Around 44,000 pints of blood must be donated every day in order to meet that demand. The Bloodmobile will be at the Lake Crystal Area Recreation Center from 12:30 to 6:30 today (MON). On Tuesday eligible donors can give blood at the Le Center American Legion from 1 to 7pm, and on Thursday there’s a blood drive at the Gaylord American Legion from 1 to 7.
